Our aim is to raise £10,000 for Just4Children to fund Lyra’s rehabilitation after her Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR).
This is our daughter Iyra Casey Austin from Sutton-in-Ashfield in Notts she is currently three years old. Iyra suffers from Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy caused as a result of her brain being starved of oxygen at birth. To you and I this basically means Iyra can’t sit, stand or walk unaided which increasingly becomes difficult for Iyra as she now realises she can’t do the same things as her peers.
Iyra requires weekly physiotherapy and Botox injections several times per year. She also has to wear casts on both feet after each Botox injection for six weeks and also needs hydrotherapy sessions.
Iyra will have to re-learn how to walk and for the SDR operation to be successful Iyra will have to undergo intense physio and hydropool therapy. So please give your support.
